Lyrics

The Absurdity (Of Pride)

 

(ominous speaking voice) You have no idea what goes on in my mind

Or how absurd is my pride. Hmm…

But right now, I'm gonna give you a little peek. C'mon.

(Come on) woo (Oh honey) uh oh (doo, doo, doo, do)

 

Verse

I can turn a lesbian straight, or limp the wrist of the most macho man

I can make an hermaphrodite change her life

Erase something off of his body, with a wink of my eye

 

Chorus

Me, I, myself, it's mine, all about me, gee, honey oo-wee.

Let me tell you

 

Verse 2

Couples talk about me all the time (it happens all the time)

J.K.'s just lucky. She says I'm not that fine

‘Cause when I lick my lips, she shakes her ass

The moment her man turns away, she's thinking ‘bout how to get backstage to meet me

 

Chorus 2

I, myself, it's mine, all about me, gee, oh honey, oo-wee, the story of my life

I, myself, it's mine, all about me, gee, oh honey, oo-wee, the absurdity of my pride

 

Change

By the time my music hits the record store

I've already sold out, but they’re still wanting more

I never really knew I'd compromised

Just so you could stoke my pride

 

Chorus 3

Me, I, myself, it's mine, all about me, gee, oh honey, oo-wee, the story of my life

I, myself, it's mine, all about me, gee, oh honey, oo-wee, the absurdity of my pride

 

Breakdown

Yo, Johnny, Keith, KK, Erick, Dell, Bubbles, Lee, Butch, Mom, and Pop.

Yo that's the original Kings right there

Yo Mister Natural, real music in America. 

Yeah what you know about that? I told you I was gonna bring it back

 

Chorus out

All about me, I, myself, it's mine, all about me, gee, oh honey, oo-wee, the absurdity of my pride.
